What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Artfully combines personal narrative, ethnographic insight, and an artisan's treatise on material culture and production techniques to bring quotidian Caribbean ceramic wares to life as material expressions of cultural adaptation and markers of the region's socio-economic history."—Michael R. McDonald, author of Food Culture in Central America

"Weaves a complex history that links the Caribbean with Africa, Europe, the Americas, and India and draws together threads from indigenous cultures to the impact of the slave trade, indentured workers, colonial rulers, postcolonial politics, and global tourism."—Moira Vincentelli, author of Women Potters: Transforming Traditions

"Provides a historical and social context for the heritage of traditional ceramics in the contemporary Caribbean and at the same time grounds it in the everyday practice of potters."—Mark W. Hauser, author of An Archaeology of Black Markets: Local Ceramics and Economies in Eighteenth-Century Jamaica

"In the field of indigenous ceramics, cross-regional research is becoming increasingly important for potters, students, and scholars alike. Fay establishes a solid base for both further regional research and global comparative work."—Elizabeth Perrill, author of Zulu Pottery
